We are going to start this note pointing out a truth that we Peruvians should have known long ago: we have many, too many rich things in this generous land; be producers of good meat beef – in sufficient quantities, shall we say – is not one of them. Even the hearts with which the anticuchos are prepared are usually, in many cases, imported (according to some connoisseurs, it is cheaper that way). Having said that, we can continue with this grill guide starting from the most important ingredient that exists: sincerity.
Today we can find various options on the market, both local and international, but prices vary depending on different variables: from the specific cut to the weight. Delivery has opened up a huge range of possibilities and new brands, which we will explore here to whet your appetite. When it comes to meat, the first thing to do is ask the right questions: either to the usual landlord, or to the new entrepreneurs with whom we coordinate the purchase via WhatsApp. What are we going to use them for? how should we cook each cut? How long are they grilled? at what point of heat should they be?
If we look closely, Peruvian cuisine – abundant, close, everyday – has many recipes based either on beef viscera, or on minced meat used as a filling for stuffed potatoes or covered rice, for example. In this context, lomo saltado can almost be considered an exception to the rule (hence its price in some restaurants is usually high). At what time do we eat more meat, then?
The answer is in the grills, definitely the carnivorous meeting where we Peruvians give ourselves with greater passion and devotion to the consumption of different cuts and flavors. At our table, the panorama expands with sausages, pork, macerated chicken pieces, vegetables and even fish and shellfish. Here are some proposals that bring this experience directly to the house.
